Usually, Republicans hide their contempt for workers in some kind of language of bootstrapism or something. But not Karen Handel.
“This is an example of the fundamental difference between a liberal and a conservative: I do not support a livable wage,” she said on Atlanta’s WSB-TV in response to a viewer question about raising the minimum wage. “What I support is making sure that we have an economy that is robust with low taxes and less regulation.”
Yeah, I’d say that is pretty much the difference between a liberal and a conservative. I guess in the New Gilded Age, Republicans aren’t pretending anymore.
Hopefully saying the quiet parts loud helps doom her.
